4.0 out of 5 stars life not as we know it!, 18 July 2014
Interesting guide to some of the most repulsive people we have to meet which is then tempered by some sound but obvious advice. If you do not take it too seriously, an entertaining and well written look at a major curse of modern life/

This collection of articles stands up well to the erosion of time,giving a unique insight into the concerns of educated Scots in the last quarter of the last century. Great journalism but strictly
speaking only for those who want to understand what drives Scottish particularism.

The Rage Against God
The Rage Against God

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting Polemic, 8 Jun 2014
excellent book but limited more to Hitchen's well-reasoned attack on atheism rather an apologetic explaining his faith. Htchens demolishes the veneer of rationalism advanced by modern atheists and shows that their prejudice and irrationality is as great as nay religious fanatic. In a society drifting as the traditional basis of our ethics is replaced by fashion that is surprisingly unthinking and based on the whims of educated middle-lass people whose professed concern for the poor and oppressed is only matched by their displeasure at actually meeting such people as equals:, like Swift Hitchens does an excellent job of demolishing hypocrisy, just do not expect an easy alternative.

I am usually dubious about journalists who write state of the nation pieces: so Mark Easton's book is a delightful romp across modern Britain, challenging our misconceptions.

Alien Landing: Beppe Grillo and the Advent of Dotcom Politics (Kindle Single)
Price: £1.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but sharp insight!, 3 Oct 2013

Belle Grillo's five star movement has rocked Italian politics forcing a grand coalition to oppose a movement with a profound tension between internet direct democracy and a dynamic charismatic Tv shows leader. Hoover's short makes you consider how far m5S is a traditional revolt against a whyremote elite and how much it is a sign of changes in the rest of the West.
